Cardi B. Whether you love her or hate her, you most definitely know who she is.
But who really is Cardi B and why is it that we can’t help but love her? Or why is it that I can’t help but love her?
First, a little background:
Cardi B, born Belcalis Almanzar, was born in The Bronx and originally became a stripper to get herself out of a domestically abusive relationship. She found stripping gave her confidence and left her feeling empowered. Cardi first rose to fame in 2013 due to her following on the social media app Vine (RIP) and Instagram. She then joined the cast of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop for its 6th season and became “the breakout star of the season.”
By now, you know I am Cardi B’s #1 fan for real. She dropped Bodak Yellow a year ago, and ever since then, I’ve become obsessed with her. We got into the ins and outs of my favorite girl. The internet has started tearing me to shreds because I’m just not that big of a Nicki fan.
This discussion was LIT. Now, when can I meet my girl Cardi?
